Consultation on the Central London Cycle Grid (Quietway route from Camden Town to Little
Westminster City Council, in partnership with Transport for London and other local authorities, is
supporting the delivery of the proposed Central London Cycle Grid. The Central London Cycle Grid
is being funded by the Mayor of London's Vision for Cycling, a 10-year plan to deliver cycling
improvements across London, including delivering a set of connected routes for people to cycle
across central London, comprising a network of Quietways and Cycle Superhighway routes.
This project aims to improve provision for cycling on streets along a proposed Quietway route
between Camden Town and Little Venice. It will benefit all people who want to cycle, particularly
those wishing to avoid some of the busier, highly trafficked main roads in the area. Facilities for
pedestrians will also be improved as part of the scheme.
The section of this route being consulted on within the City of Westminster is approximately 2km in
length. The streets affected by these proposals are Lisson Grove, Frampton Street, Fisherton
Street, Lyons Place, Aberdeen Place and Blomfield Road. There are aspirations to extend this
Quietway along the Grand Union Canal towpath via Delamere Terrace.
Proposed intervention measures
The Regent’s Canal
towpath is an established cycling and walking route managed by the Canal &
River Trust. As part of the proposed Central London Cycle Grid, the Canal & River Trust is
responsible for making minor improvements along the towpath and as such it is not included in this
At the junction of Frampton Street and Lisson Grove
, we are proposing to replace the existing
cycle track arrangement with a more suitable facility shared with cyclists and pedestrians. It is
proposed to repave this section of footway and remove guardrailing. This new arrangement will help
improve access to the Regent’s Canal for all users.
